About Microsoft Excel

Excel is a spreadsheet application that can also be described as a two-dimensional database (in other words it’s not relational like Access). On a basic level it can be used to store and present data; but more advanced users will be able to take advantage of its formulae function, allowing them to manipulate data according to their requirements. Information entered in Excel can also be demonstrated graphically in a variety of graph formats.

Our Approach

Interaction is vital if delegates are to achieve their training aims – which is why we make it our main focus. Attendees can also take home a copy of their course materials for future reference.

More about training with Activia

With Activia, you can check your skill level (click the yellow "FREE tools and resources" button on the right) which ensures you book on the correct course.   This facility is also invaluable when putting together training programmes or bespoke courses for numbers of delegates.

You can also build your own Microsoft Excel course (click the yellow "FREE tools and resources" button on the right) to suit your own or your company project requirements, incorporating the modules which cover the subjects you want to learn.
